Online (Zoom) Workshop

"Andrew's style of facilitation was warm, welcoming, and down to earth, which immediately put everyone at ease. I valued getting straight into the nuts and bolts of how to use the rainbow map, whereby experientially working through the model as a whole group (demonstration session), and in pairs (practice sessions). This gave me a greater sense of how to apply the rainbow map as a practitioner, in addition to being on the receiving end of working through the process. I valued the size of the group, which was small and intimate. This paved the way for a deeper connection, and a stronger sense of "we're in this learning journey together". The training notes and resources are exceptional, easy to use, and guided me through a step by step process of how to apply the rainbow map in my professional practice. I very much enjoyed the workshop. I have already integrated reflective mind, and reactive brain and body model into my practice." Responses to: How useful was the workshop, 10/10. How useful compared to other workshop's, 10/10. Value for money 10/10.

"CPD was great. Really useful, practical and applicable. A huge amount of work boiled down into an apparently simple framework. I loved the slick timing. Not a moment was wasted. Great that it could be done so well online. Saved travel time. Really good model and right amount of information that could be taken in, in one day. I am using the rainbow map for the first time next week with a client, will use the reflective mind and reactive brain/body model as a general explanation as a jargon free way to explain the basic science. The trigger cycle on the right hand side was particulary interestind and not something I have come across before."  Responses to: How useful was the workshop, 10/10. How useful compared to other workshop's, 10/10. Value for money 10/10.

"I really liked the visuals of the map itself and the reflective mind and reactive brain/body model. They integrated aspects of psycho education and embodied experience that I already use in my work as an EMDR therapist into a neat user friendly format that I know will be very helpful with clients and for myself too. In fact I used the model on myself over the weekend and found it helpful. I loved the long paired work and found it very helpful to have this time to work through the map together and to practice it on myself."

"I enjoyed the map as a tool, there's definitely some clients I'm working with that I feel could benefit from exploring what is going on with them in those times of being triggered." Responses to: How useful was the workshop , 10/10. How useful compared to other workshop 's, 10/10. Value for money 10/10.

"I received a very clear overview of the tool. I benefited from the one-to-one work in the Zoom breakout rooms, which really helped me get a sense of how to integrate the map into my practice. Andrew was informative, sensitive and very helpful."  Responses to: How useful was the workshop , 9/10. How useful compared to other workshop 's, 8/10. Value for money 9/10.

"It was very helpful to have a visual map, including the aide memoir that can be used to explore with clients their trigger cycle and how they may feel/ think in different arousal states. I enjoyed the practical elements too. I also liked how the concepts of the reflective mind and reactive Brain and Body were explained. The FOPPI acronym was also helpful in this."  Responses to: How useful was the workshop , 10/10. How useful compared to other workshop 's, 9/10. Value for money 10/10.

"It was a great training - very well prepared and taught. Andrew was so approachable and came across as such a caring and thoughtful person. His materials are excellent and the fact that we got to practice using the materials twice was great. I am planning to use the Rainbow Map with a client this week." Responses to: How useful was the workshop , 10/10. How useful compared to other workshop 's, 9/10. Value for money 10/10.
